The Diva’s horse was very funny during her riding lesson on Monday. They have put a mirror up at the far end of the ring, and her horse had not been used in the ring since the mirror went up.
Sometimes my daughter has a hard time getting her horse to actually stay in the ring while they are riding. Not Monday. Her horse was VERY interested in the hunka hunka new horse that he kept seeing every time he approached the far end of the ring. It was hilarious.
They would ride toward that end, his ears would start to twitch, and he would head straight for the good lookin’ horse in the mirror. She would steer him away and he would go fairly willingly, with just the tiniest backward glance at the new kid.
Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world. ~Josephine Demott Robinson
